Got ourselves a new crazy sheik down here:
The mysterious sheik behind the Australian chapter of Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir has revealed the organisation’s support for military coups and revolutions to overthrow non-Muslim governments worldwide.
Ismail Al Wahwah, who was little known until last month when he was banned from a Hizb ut-Tahrir conference in Indonesia, spoke out on an Arabic radio program that revealed him as the “active member” of the group in Australia.
In an interview on SBS radio last month, he attacked the West’s lack of values and backed the use of suicide bombings in Iraq and Palestine, even if they killed Australians. “I say any occupied people have the responsibility to defend their country,” he told SBS’s Arabic radio program. “The victim should not be asked how he is defending himself.”
Sheik Wahwah is understood to be the unofficial leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Australia.
Hizb ut-Tahrir media spokesman Wassim Doureihi claims Sheik Wahwah isn’t the group’s leader. Then again, Wassim’s claims vary depending on who he’s talking to.

“I say any occupied people have the responsibility to defend their country,”
I expect the Coptic Christians in Egypt would be rather receptive to such backing. The Menonite and Orthodox Christians in Lebanon, Zorastorians in Iraq, Bah’ia in Iran, Orthodox Christians in Turkey too…Posted by Major John on 2007 09 26 at 12:25 PM • permalink

“I say any occupied people have the responsibility to defend their country,” he told SBS’s Arabic radio program. “The victim should not be asked how he is defending himself.”
I agree. That’s why my respect for, and admiration of, Vlad III the Impaler (aka “Dracula”) grows everyday. His alleged ‘cruel punishments’ were only done in defense of his home against the Ottoman (Muslim) invader. The Prince “should not be asked how he is defending himself.” My only regret is that I have no Romanian heritage.
As a person whose family has been in America for nearly 250 years, I will heed the advice of the sheik and the Prince’s example against those who come to MY country to destroy MY way of life.Posted by Mark Razak on 2007 09 26 at 12:36 PM • permalink
Ah our friends in Sydney have discussed him back in August. Also known as Abu Anas, father of Anas of UWS.

Attacked the west’s lack of values?
We don’t stone adulterers.
We give equal value to men and women.
We don’t hang homosexuals.
We don’t murder headstrong girls.
We don’t allow honour killing.
We don’t hack heads of those who don’t believe what we do.
We don’t hack heads of those who don’t believe as strongly as we do.
We don’t condone beating women.
We don’t condone slavery.
Gee, there’s so many values of theirs that we lack.
What will it take pickles?
That is the scary question.
The answer is even scarier. This isn’t just one nation with a mad ideology, such as Japan was. Add to that the capacity of present day weapons, spread over several nations.
When it comes to that and I’m afraid it will, the choices will be (and WE all know that)…One be subverted from the inside. Two be conquered from the outside. Three, just DO IT!
”…he attacked the West’s lack of values and backed the use of suicide bombings in Iraq and Palestine…”
The irony couldn’t get anymore delicious than this.
If our “lack of values” explains why we thrive socially, economically, and intellectually, then I am all for it.

HIZB UT-TAHRIR PRESS CONFERENCE
*A black haired olive skinned young man with a full beard, angry wild eyes, carying a Koran and wearing a shirt not tucked in and trousers cut high at the cuff to expose the achilles tendons approaches a microphone on a stand and clears his throat – in other words, a man of no appearance*
MONA: “Ahem, yes thank you for coming today. Before we get started, some preliminaries, please could all the unclean and inferior journalists leave the room?”
*Blank looks and awkward silence*
MONA: “Don’t make us single you out and embarrass you, we know who the aaaah, less reliable one’s are.”
* A chair is pushed back and scrapes noisily on the floor and all turn to look*
MONA: “No, no not you Phillip Adams, we are referring to the females.”
*Adams sits with a smug look on his face as the ladies shuffle out led meekly by Germaine Greer*
MONA: “Now, that gives the ladies freedom to discuss children, cooking and running a house, those types of things. Yet I don’t expect any of you infidel journalists to recognise, or even report on such a clear display of the freedoms we extend to women. You infidels really have a thing or two to learn. Don’t worry, we’re very good teachers and there will be plenty of incentive. Just consider it one of the benefits of unrestrained multiculturalism. Anyway, to business. My name is Wassim Doureihi and I am the spokesman for Hizb Ut-Tahrir. I have another first name as most muslim men do, but no real need to tell you what it is as you can probably guess….it’s one of the most popular first names going.”
PHIL ADAMS INTERJECTS: “Is it Che?”
WD: *With the look of a special needs teacher on his face* “No Phillip, CHE…IKH maybe one day, but no, you’ll work it out soon enough. Allow me to continue; today, Hizb Ut-Tahrir would like to clear up the confusion over who exactly our leader is. He has gone by several different names and this has caused misunderstandings. Therefore, we recently engaged one of our allied organisations which we met at an anti war rally to help us with this sticky PR problem. The solution that the Socialist Alliance came up with is to rename our leader yet again. This is a whole new look which we are very excited about.”
*Leans over to a lectern with a large board covered by a green Islamic flag, grabs one corner*
WD: “Believers and Infidels, the leader formerly known as Al Wahwah shall now be known as…*removes flag with a flourish*….Peace symbol!”
UNIDENTIFIED JOURNO (Drily): “That’s a Mercedes symbol.”
WD: *Looks sharply at symbol on placard with mouth agape* “Aaaah, errr, ohhhh, right yeah…….oh I know, from now on he will be know as the religion of peace symbol!”
UNIDENTIFIED JOURNO “You don’t expect any copyright issues?”
WD: No I hope not. We don’t want to get in any dispute with the Germans, we’ve admired them for about 60 years now.”

- Hizb ut-Tahrir’s media spokesman, Wassim Doureihi, denied the sheik was the group’s leader in Australia, saying Sheik Wahwah was a senior member and that his brother, Ashraf, a civil engineer at North Sydney Council, was the official leader.
Oh, well, that’s all right then …. I guess. At least he’s not an architect with access to all sorts of infrastructure stuff … oh! Waaaaait a minute …
